'No-sweat' divorce: Who wears the pants?

Judge for yourself...  (Photo by Punkt8)
Who wears the pants in the family?  According to actress Eva Mendes, the “ladies” do.  And when these pants are “sweats,” that spells d-i-v-o-r-c-e in Mendes’ world.

How do we know all this?  Debbie Emery of The Wrap was kind enough to publish Mendes’ mighty thoughts on the subject.  They go like this: You can’t do sweatpants.  No.  Ladies, number one cause of divorce in America?

Mendes' boyfriend, Ryan Gosling, weighed in on the matter.  His response can be found in this Twitter quote: …Wearing them now. That’s right, tweeting in sweatpants.  Rats! Said too much…

Gosling also called this whole "sweatpants thing" a “joke.”

Wish that it were.  Although Mendes and Gosling may have been making lighthearted comments, these stereotypical traditions are still all-too-much in effect:

Ladies, if you want to hang on to your men, then you’d better mop floors and wash dishes in your Saturday-night best. 

Men, you can do whatever.  Be defiant.  Tweet in sweatpants.  It just makes you bad boys all the more alluring…
